Diet Soda Helps You Lose Weight?

So tonight on the news I heard the beverage industry commissioned a study that ended up showing drinking diet soda actually helps people lose weight.

Funny how the reporter easily understood the problem with the study: it was paid for by the industry it was supposed to be studying. Throw the results out, people. This “study” was an ad.

WHY is it so hard to see the same thing happening with the over-testing we have going on in our schools? If the test makes things better, why are more college students than ever in remedial classes? Why have SAT scores stayed stagnate?

And who pays for these “studies” anyway?
